“Remember, and this is one of the most difficult as well as most wonderful statements to grasp. Remember that no matter what the difficulty is, no matter where it is, no matter who is affected, you have no patient but yourself; you have nothing to do but convince yourself of the truth which you desire to see manifested.” Charles Haanel
The ”truth which you desire to see manifested” is our smooth path through life. We just need to take ourselves in hand and realize that it is we ourselves who are making for the happiness or the difficulties in our life. There is no other “patient” but ourselves.
While this change of mind is not difficult, it also can be perceived as difficult. Prayer helps. If we just surrender to God as we recognize Him, we will see problems melt away like ice sickles. There is nothing that God can’t and won’t resolve for us when we are amenable to Him. We ourselves, though, are not strong enough to change our minds and hearts. We need help, and we need to acknowledge that we need help.
It is so frustrating to read the law of attraction, and to read “just change your mind,” and then we feel powerless to make that change. The secret to change lies in our relationship to the infinite, to God Himself.
When we rest in the knowledge that God loves us and that His help is a free offer, we rest in power that can change the world, especially our little part of the world.
